Ten Mis-conceptions About Hypnosis:

10. Whilst in an hypnosic trance, a person can be made to tell the truth. Or alternatively, a person is unable to lie while in a hypnotic trance.

Ten Mis-conceptions About Hypnosis:

6. Whilst under hypnosis people’s memories are improved and they can recall everything that has happened to them in the past. Similarly, hypnosis can be used to permanently erase the memory of anything that has happened to someone.
